Twelve percent of allophones — those whose first language is neither English nor French — use cannabis.
This is compared to 21% of Quebecers who use cannabis overall.
Montrealers also combine alcohol and cannabis more than the Quebec average.
A press release from Éduc'alcool says, "35% of francophones who use cannabis and alcohol together combine the two always or often (vs. 28% of Quebecers overall) [...] The same is true for 26% of anglophones and 29% of allophones who use cannabis and drink alcohol at the same time."
Data for the survey was collected online from August through October 2020, and from February 15 to March 30, 2021. Éduc'alcool surveyed 1,200 people in the Montreal region and a total of 7,600 respondents across Quebec.
"Overall, the City of Montreal saw 990 $1 million–plus residential real estate transactions," including condos, attached and single-family homes, "in the first half of 2021, an increase of 112% from the same period in 2020," the report states.
Though sales in $2 to $4 million homes in Montreal rose by 138%, sales in $1 to $2 million homes made up the largest share of sales overall, with 807 Montreal properties sold in the first half of 2021, Sotheby's says.
Sales in properties over $4 million more than doubled between 2020 and 2021 — just six were sold in the first half of 2020, compared to the 14 properties sold in the same period in 2021.
The report said that according to the Quebec Professional Association of Real Estate Brokers, on average, selling a residential property in Montreal during the first quarter of 2021 took approximately 44 days, compared to the 68 it took to sell a home less than a year prior.
The City of Montreal and Formula E organizers have finally reached a settlement after five long years of deliberations and arguments. The saga, which involved a lawsuit against the city and Mayor Valérie Plante following a cancelled 2018 race, is finally over thanks to the out-of-court agreement.
In a press release, Benoit Dorais, chairman of the executive committee responsible for finance and legal affairs, said that the city "authorized an out-of-court settlement in the amount of capital, interest and costs of $3 million payable by the City to Formula E Opérations Limitée (FEO) in full and final settlement of the case."
There is also a flavour that replicates the Indian dish butter chicken, another that replicates a typical Quebec recipe, poutine, as well as one that brings a sweet touch: cotton candy.
Each of them can be purchased in individual seasoning bags, known as "Flavour Boosts," which allow you to transform the traditional macaroni and cheese into a whole new meal.
If some of the flavours we just mentioned sound intriguing to you, you can order 6 Flavour Boosts for $15 on the Kraft Dinner website. Or, you can find them being sold at Walmart in Canada, and "other major grocery stores starting in July."
Ghost pepper is exclusively sold online and unfortunately, the Buffalo wings and poutine flavours are already sold out online.
